I'll drink to that - 6-1 to 6-30

we all know what drinks are - anything from water to hard alcohol - so I won't make a long list of drinks. yes, embedded words are acceptable. release as many books that fit this category and list them of course :-). Looking forward to getting a new challenge started. it's been too long.

okay since this starts tomorrow thought i would add all the suggestions for acceptable entries.

any kind of release
Pictures on the cover of drinks
authors names as well as in the titles
.perhaps phrases and/or words related to drinking - be creative
it's all good and it's all fun

Sending these as a surprise RABCK for another BCer's LFL. ; ) Not being one who drinks, I had to research this a bit, but a beer and a shot of whiskey are aka "a shot & a beer", aka a "boilermaker". Many know a beer HEAD is the frothy foam on top of a beer, and JACK is short for Jack Daniels Whiskey. Thought I'd share this info because it seems as though some terms to use for releases may be "hiding" in there. ; )

I read this today and was vastly amused - and a bit squicked, but mostly amused. I'd heard of this infamous drink in the past, but hadn't expected to see it in the news. For me the funniest parts of the article have to do with the bar staff's rather casual comments about their "backup toes" and how they obtain and preserve them.

Now to try and find a book with "sourtoe" in the title!
